Each year we hold our very own talent show. This event is open to all years and draws in huge audiences. The show gets bigger and better each year ofetn featuring returning acts (including staff!). The Hurst's Got Telent is the first main event of the year provided by the creative arts team.

The creative arts team lead a full blown production each year just before Christmas. These are original re-tellings of classic tales with a few wierd and wonderful twists thrown in for good measure. With cast sizes of over 100, the school production is a highlight of the school calendar.
These all singing, all dancing productions are open to Year 7 - 10 and auditions take place in the summer term, with rehearsals starting at the beginning of autumn term.
Previos shows include:

For pupils who are thinking of, or are taking their performing to another level and are involved in performaces outside of school, we offer specific audition practice and technique sessions to help support pupils looking to get ahead in the industry.
There are plenty of opportunities for pupils to get involved even if they don't want to appear on stage! There is the set, lighting, sound, costume and backstage jobs on offer - just ask one of the team!
